The Groom Says Yes (Brides of Wishmore #3) by Cathy Maxwell (audiobook) – Narrated by Mary Jane Wells

the groom says yes

He had a noose around his neck and a price on his head…

Sabrina Davidson, dutiful daughter, avowed spinster, thought she’d secured a place for herself in Aberfeldy society – until her hard-earned acceptance of her fate is challenged by the arrival of Cormac Enright, earl of Ballin, trained physician, soldier of fortune, and convicted felon.

A prim and proper miss was the last thing he needed…

Mac is determined to clear his name, but first he has to find the man whose testimony sentenced him to a hangman’s noose. Of course, Robert Davidson is missing and protecting Mac is Davidson’s daughter, the most entrancing, frustrating, beguiling, stubborn woman Mac has ever met.

And it doesn’t help that he has already tasted her kisses. Or that he has found in her a passion for life and adventure to rival his own. Mac has turned Sabrina’s world inside out – but what will happen when he leaves?

Or will the groom say yes..?

Rating: A for narration; C+ for content

This is the final book in Cathy Maxwell’s Brides of Wishmore trilogy, but I don’t think it’s necessary to have listened to the previous books in order to understand or enjoy this one. The Groom Says Yes boasts a fairly straightforward story with an added touch of mystery concerning the threat to the hero, and both central characters are likeable and well-matched, but I suspect that had I read it rather than listened to it, I’d have found it a little bland. The audiobook, however, benefits from another fine performance from Mary Jane Wells; and while she can’t rework the story, she does infuse it with colour, light and shade by virtue of her skilful characterisations and by injecting both humour and emotional depth into all aspects of her narration.
